Like some of the others, I stumbled across this site while I was reading another post that directed me here. We are old and new to the RV life style. Old meaning that we had a Coachman TT in the early 80' when the kids were in the terrible 2's. Fast forward many years, again the itch or wild hair prompted me to buy another MH. Found this one on ebay at a bank repo sale. 1996 Pace Arrow Vision with 34,000 miles and just a few minor problems. Loaded as all Visions are, Ford 460, Tag Axle, dual air, 5KW gen set,37' with the J floor plan and only a COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

So as a new bee on this site, please forgive my stupid questions. I'm just trying to learn, and as I have done all my life, I learn the hard way most of the time.

Horace & Bobbie;

Welcome to IRV2. You stumbled onto the friendliest site on the Internet. Please don't be afraid to ask questions. If you go to the Owners Section you will find a Fleetwood Forum that should be able to answer questions on your Vision. Post often and share your travel & camping experiences with us.

Thanks for the warm welcome from your group. Now if I can find a club or group of RV'er in the Southeast North Carolina, so I can tag along, that will be great.

OH, and about the KARMA, you are correct! It never hurts to have alot of it, Maybe it will find it's way to my signature.
